* herb garden markers

Posted on April 30th, 2010 by maitreya. Filed under Fun with Lab Supplies, Home and Garden.

For the new herb garden, a set of markers.  They’re wooden tongue depressors from lab, stamped with a pigment ink (all ingredients I already had on hand, I’m happy to say).  A test stick immersed in water didn’t run, so I’m crossing my fingers they’ll hold up to the elements.  Plan B is outdoor Mod Podge, but a test with that did make the ink run.  It’s possible I didn’t wait long enough for it to dry, though.
